“Let me see if I got this right. You buy low grade

beat up cards and feature them on your blog.

That’s awesome. Totally different than all the

other blogs I have seen featuring the nicest cards.”


1957 Topps
Duke Snider

Alright, I know I overpaid for this card. It was $12.

But as the author of a blog titled "Poor Old Baseball Cards," how could I resist.

Good ol' Duke is split right down the middle. That's not a heavy crease, that's a tear. It's barely hanging on. It's nearly two halves.

It's still a sweet baseball card.

And if anyone were to ask if I would rather have 12 brand new 2009 baseball card packs or this torn piece of cardboard ... well those of you who read this blog regularly know the answer.

I'd take this 1957 Duke Snider every time.

So would I. That card is over 50 years old and is of a hall of famer. No contest.
